Part of the beauty and wonder of the just concluded London Olympics was the sneak peeks into the culture and customs of many of the Nations that sent athletes to compete for the Gold. One such example is the bold Dutch custom of the Rijsttafel. When the Dutch expanded their empire to Indonesia, they were swept up by the native cuisine it discovered. Excited by this new world of creative cooking, their appetites increased, and so did the number of dishes at the elaborate table. Thus began the birth of the Rijsttafel, which highlights the various Old World delicacies. The Rijsttafel was brought to The Netherlands, and now this fascinating culinary event in all it's glory, can be enjoyed by you -- right here in Chicago.
See you Sept 9th!
